What will peck and poke, and swim, or fly, or wobble out of each egg? Ten spreads with gatefolds and a dramatic fold-out finale lead young readers from a single penguin egg to an ostrich's clutch of ten. Throughout, kids expand their grasp of nature - animals who hatch from eggs, their birthing environments, and what they're like when newly hatched.
More is better! Natalie Marshalls goofy monsters made their debut in a book about monsters and manners - Monster Be Good! This time, its monsters and math, as every monster-member of this funny, grumpy, not-too-scary gang counts jelly beans, teddy bears, apples, donuts, toys, and even kisses. What do they all have in common? They all want ONE MORE! As each monster gets his wish, kids can chime in with the new number that ONE MORE adds up to. When the next-to-last monster gets TEN goodnight kisses, ONE mom-ster hug is just enough to cap off this tale of merry monster-math! Entertaining as it educates, Monster Needs One More! offers a perfect primer for introducing preschoolers to counting and addition. Who could ask for more?

Discover, explore, comment, rate, remember, wish, plan - and make lists!
